Overview

The School Library is run by Mrs R Procter and Mrs A McClelland with the able assistance of the Pupil Librarians.  These girls are often recruited while still in Junior School and continue to support the Library throughout their time at Glenlola Collegiate.

Special occasions on the calendar and literary events such as National Poetry Day and World Book Day are frequently celebrated in the Library with presentations, quizzes and displays.  We also contribute to the Bangor’s Aspects Literary Festival.

The Library has a well-stocked and very popular fiction section.  It is also invaluable as a resource centre which supports pupils in the personal research now required in all subjects on the curriculum.  Research materials, including a comprehensive selection of educational journals and magazine, are complemented by IT resources.

The Library is open to all pupils at the following times:-

  • Break-Time
  • Lunch
  • After school until 4.30pm Monday to Thursday, Friday until 3.30pm.

All Junior School pupils also have a scheduled class in the Library once a fortnight, during which they have the opportunity to expand their appreciation of reading as well as learning how to make the best use of printed and electronic resources.  Accelerated Reader, a progress monitoring online tool, is currently being unrolled to further encourage reading and assess reading levels.
